Kairos Puget Sound Coalition sponsored this conference focused on the human rights of incarcerated Palestinian children in Israeli prisons. Jennifer Bing from the Friends American Service Committee and Brad Parker from Defense for Children International-Palestine, led the conference. This video features a twenty-minute film: “Detaining Dreams- the stories of four Palestinian children” followed by a panel discussion by four experts and questions from the audience.
The panel includes:
Amal Muammar-Hastings: A clinical social worker who grew up under occupation in Israel and Palestine before relocating to the US in 1980 to pursue her education.
Alice Rothchild: An OB-GYN physician, author, and film maker who has focused her interest in human rights and social justice on the Israeli/Palestine conflict since 1997. . John McKay: An attorney who teaches Constitutional and National Security Law at Seattle University, was ‘Chief of Team’ of the Rule of Law projects in the West Bank for the US State Dept.
Brad Parker: Staff attorney and international advocacy officer, Defense for Children International- Palestine.
The Kairos Puget Sound Coalition, a congregationally-based network working for justice and peace in Palestine/Israel and is affiliated with Christian churches and organizations located in the greater Seattle area. These organizations are responding to the plea of Palestinian Christians to end their oppression.
In 2009, Palestinian Christians wrote the document Kairos Palestine: “A Moment of Truth”, in faithful resistance to the oppression and dispossession of their people. It expresses faith, hope and love from the heart of Palestinian suffering.
